political disaster. without roberts, a george w. bush appointee himself, the landmark obama accomplishment would have been struck down by the court's conservatives. and the president's opponents would have been handed a battering ram for the coming campaign. any observer could see that a weight had been lifted off the president's shoulders. >> whatever the politics, today's decision was a victory for people all over this country whose lives will be more secure because of this law and the supreme court's decision to uphold it. >> what an unusual pairing. barack obama, the liberal president, progressive president, and chief justice john roberts. they will be joined together in history. >> yeah. and i think you couldn't see this coming. because if you go back to the oral argument, it sure did seem like a majority. court was not prepared to uphold the law. and now we know why. because a majority. court also said that the government's central theory, which you could do this under the commerce clause, was not constitutional. instead, it was the government's fallback that satched the day. and dur
that no one would have expected, jeef justice john roberts, who was appointed by president george w. bush to lead this court in a more conservative direction, initially was poised to strike down the key part of the health care law, but then, he changed his mind and the outcome of this entire case. >> cbs news, and its legal correspondent jan crawford, breaking the story earlier this week that chief justice john roberts originally decided with conservatives about the obama care mandate. while writing the decision changed his mind and the rest, as they say, is history. jim, the question is, how did cbs get that info and was it news for coverage of the court going forward? >> jan is a very good reporter and we assume that she got it from another justice. she had a lot of detail about anthony kennedy, you know, apparently spending a month trying to get roberts on this decision, it opens up a whole n new-- where to come from and information and including the courts now. >> it does seem strange, judy, the supreme court has been sort of a bastion of secrecy up until now. >> it has been and you c
and the presidency. to be fair, you have to go back to 2008 when george w. bush was the president of the united states in order to find one, but here it is. >> next time you hear politicians say he or she will bring down oil prices, understand it's complete bs. if they want lower prices, cut back. sell those suvs, ride a bike when you can. if every one of us bought 10% less gasoline, prices would fall fast. >> well, happy fourth of july, republicans. next time you want to use gas prices as a political tool, make sure you listen to your friend bill o'reilly because he's always looking out for you. get your cell phones out. want to know what you think. will republicans ever stop using gas prices as a political ploy? text a for yes, text b for no, to 622639. we'll bring you the results later in the show. i'm joined tonight by a man who has answered, commissioner of the commodity futures trading commission. we have been down this road, but i like to remind them how this all works. explain the main reason gas prices have dropped 60 cents in the last three months. what's going on? >> hey, ed. we have

thought when george w. bush nominated john roberts to the supreme court back in 2005 that he would provide the key fifth vote with the court for liberals to uphold president obama's massive signature achievement, the healthcare reform act. so when the decision came down, people were outraged. but then when it became clear that john roberts, the chief justice, originally sided with the conservatives to strike down the heart of the law, the individual mandate, then, i think, the outrage became much, much more pronounced. gwen: i think bill galston who worked - i think it was your story i read in which he said winners celebrate and looses mobilize. what happens when it's not clear who lost and who won? >> they're all mobilizing. really, probably the base of both parties, the liberals for the democrats and conservatives for the republicans, can find plenty to get fired up. clearly the conservatives hate obamacare and they'll say we have to -- but romney says if you want to get rid of obamacare, you have to vote out president obama. it would have been bad for president obama if this was struck
on taxation seems to be politically unique. we've had wealthy republican presidents before george h.w. bush, wealthy family, but their personal wealth was never perceived to be part of their actual governing decisions. bush had republican philosophy about taxation. you saw very rich democrats who actually had a nonself-interested tax policies. the fact that these policies are all to romney's only self-interest is the peculiar part of the politics. >> i think it's that. i don't think it's his wealth that's the problem. i think it's the fact that he's paying a lower income tax rate than the lowest marginal income tax rate. he has all these offshore accounts, swiss bank accounts, cayman islands and bahamas and there's a terrible contrast he has with his father who was exactly the opposite. who was the model of transparency releasing 12 years of income taxes saying that it would be -- it could be a fluke if you only released one year. paul krugman was writing today that at the time they were reporting george romney was going out of his way to not take advantage of the loopholes in the tax syste
it earlier like mark levin asking whether george w. bush managed to nominate someone who is much more liberal than the conservative supporters believed. megyn: in the wake of last week's healthcare decision america's psychiatrist dr. keith ablow is calling the president's law a virus that could actually wind up making people sick, at least in their mindset. dr. ablow joins me now. in addition to being a psychiatrist he's a member of our fox news medical a team. rel come back to the praopl. i thought your column was interesting. you talked about how there are obviously going to be economic costs to this law but you believe they pale in comparison to the cost to the american mindset. how so? >> absolutely. megyn, money is a metaphor. when you start acting, when the government begins to act as parent to its citizens as children, and says, we are going to earmark your after-tax dollars. i know this has been called a tax, but it's earmarking the money you take home, that you must spend it on certain things, that means literally that you don't know whether any of your money is really yours. today i
george w. bush a second term in 2004, but, if the tide goes out on the economy, there is enough fluidity, there is enough fluidity there are enough moderate voters and swing voters you could see potentially a big romney victory if in fact the economy is in the dumps. certainly you could see a big swing for romney. megyn: now they're talking about yet another round of quantitative easing which is basically fire up the money printer. we need more dough to easingis quantitatively. does that have any meaningful impact on that chart we saw between now and november? does that in any way put points on the board for barack obama, the democratic party, the american people? >> well, first we should point out they don't even bother to print money anymore. they conjure it digitally. it is made into being as pixels. megyn: getting so ex-haas tiff for the guy in the back. >> but, yes, democrats hope that if the news is bad enough and bernanke, chairman bernanke can convince the other members of the federal reserve to go along with another splurp of federal reserve money to free up lending that it will

possible by the chief justice john roberts appointed by george w. bush, and believed up until recently to be a conservative. there's a fascinating piece by cbs news sort of unwinding how this came to be in it. in it, i'm quoting now, roberts pays attention to media coverage. he's sensitive to how the court is perceived by the public. do you think it's possible that after reading weeks of "new york times" editorials attacking him preemptively for ruling against obamacare, chief justice roberts decided to rule it constitutional? >> i think that's possible, tucker. i don't know the guy. it certainly is possible. but, you know, i look at that decision, and as much as i hate it with every fiber of my being, because it's an immoral, horrible, euthanasia law. i believe fundamentally when he said i'm affirming the individual mandate, he gave us each of us an individual mandate to defeat barack obama, retake the senate, and repeal this law. he basically said, i'm not going to do your job for you. go out in the streets, win this election, do it like we do it in a democracy, and then you repeal t
, the chief justice appointed by george w. bush, of course, saying that this law now stands. >> ten days and counting since the right leapt on to the justice roberts' hate wagon. >> should conservatives despise john roberts? >> he rendered an activist decision that rewrote the law. >> this is a mess. it's a mess. a court in crisis and reports of a chief justice like a weather vain in a storm. >> like i said, ten days and counts of this. >> let's repeal this and start over again. >> it makes a fresh start on the road to repeal. >> to make sure that this law is, in fact, repealed. >> we will repeal obamacare. >> there's got to be more. >> let's repeal and replace obamacare. >> repealing the president's health care law. >> repeal obamacare. >> we want to repeal. >> repeal it. >> so obamacare is so bad and repealing it is so urgent that republicans in the house are pushing a vote to repeal the law this week on wednesday. we know lawmakers left d.c. on thursday. maybe a bunch on them weren't watching the tv on friday. >> just minutes ago, we learned unemployment is still bogged down at a dism
, cnn political contributor and former white house press secretary for george w. bush. all, bill burton, senior strategist for the top pro-obama super pac and senior legal analyst for cnn jeffrey toobin. jeff, let me begin with you. it's a simple question but not a simple answer. tax or penalty? >> john roberts' opinion said that this penalty, tax, whatever you want to call it, this punishment, this payment, was justified under the taxing power of the constitution. that was why he approved the whole plan. that's what he said. what a bunch of politicians want to call it is the fight we're having now. >> to be really clear, if you parse the opinion, it suggests that those who don't go out and get the insurance under the new law will be punished with a tax. >> correct. that's exactly what the opinion holds. it's not a lot of people. if massachusetts is the example we're talking about, it's about 1% of the population refused to get health insurance and can afford it, those people will be punished under this law and chief justice roberts' opinion says the payment that they have to make is a
of the leadership qualities that we want in a president. george w. bush whom we rarely invoke for anything positive, at least had a clarity of thought so people said we know what he thinks. and the rap on john kerry in '04 was the flip-flopping. >> romney is just following -- the weird thing is he's still having to play so much to his base. his entire base had the same 180 on roberts as well. so he's gotta go out there and he still for some reason, has not solidified his base. you cannot continue to talk to the tea party and the rest of america at the same time and not look crazy to one of them. >> right. >> you have to get to the point where you're above these kind of petty attacks on supreme court justice and say i don't agree with the decision but i'm not going to go attack john roberts because it is beneath me. he's sitting on the supreme court. the chief justice of the united states. but he's still stuck in those kinds of arguments and still playing to bill kristol the editorial page. here we are heading into july and
these numbers and phenomenon? >> not really. he does well among democrats just like george w. bush did among republicans but he's long since lost the republicans. >> scott. thank you very much. >>> thank you. >>> moving jobs out as high taxes move in. why lawmakers in our nation's capital should pay close attention to what's going on in the big apple. . with better car replacement, if your car is totaled, we give you the mone for a car one model year newer. liberty mutual auto insurance. >> neil: you think high taxes don't drive away jobs? look what's happening to thousands of wall street jobs. they're leaving new york fast. tom is a c.e.o. just down on wall street and says lawmakers everywhere better learn. you reported this before, seen it firsthand, that a lot of midlevel type positions are losing the city. >> this is a less to washington state and local governments. people out there won't spend money they don't have to stay in a state that costs too much and the burden is on the company of staying if business or going out of business so they go to low-cost areas where they can afford to
. and oh, here's something interesting, it's also about equal in size to george h.w. bush's 1990 tax increase. and whoa, you know who signed an even bigger tax increase into law, president ronald reagan. his 1982 tax increase was about 42% bigger. reagan also cut taxes and indeed he did, he cut them big. much like obama did in the stimulus and then again in 2010 when he extended all of the bush tax cuts for two years and added more on top of that, and like he's promising to do again in 2012 when he said he would extend most of the bush tax cuts permanently. i don't think this is great. to be fiscally responsible in the country, we're going to need to do more than let the bush tax cuts expire. we have to get deficits under control, taxes have to stop being a dirty word and start being a part of budgeting. we need to have the numbers straight. the affordable care act is not the largest tax hike in history, in 50 years, 40 years, 30 years, even 20 years and if you count the scheduled expiration in 2010 of the bush tax cuts, it's not even the largest tax hike written into law in the last

out in 2000 and 2004, i think george w. bush in 2000, would -- early in the campaign it seems to me, i remember him going to one inner city stop after another inner city stop and we were all scratching our heads why are they doing it, they weren't doing it to win votes in the inner city, they were doing it to win votes in the philadelphia suburbs. >> because in the philadelphia suburbs they like a compassionate conservative which mitt romney has proved he's not this campaign. >> has he proven that? >> those primaries, i -- i think did it. but on the theory that 90% of life is showing up, it was a good thing to go. a good thing he went. he had the opportunity to show the nonindependent voter that he wasn't going to go all wobbly. the people he's still going to protect are people like him. and he -- right there in the lion's den he said i'm not going to protect you. >> jon meacham, you talked about historical trends, we both talked about how this duopoly of parties that's been around for 150 years is sure to crack, for a lot of younger americans it may be hard to believe, but african-ame
